TORONTO – On May 19, Metrolinx’ GO Transit announced several new trips on its Lakeshore West Line – including more trains to Niagara Falls. A third round trip from Toronto has been introduced on weekends and holidays to and from Niagara Falls. Until Thanksgiving, weekend, and holiday trips to Niagara Falls will include bike cars, where cyclists can store their bikes for the trip.

Two new weekday round trips to Niagara Falls began May 23. All Niagara Fall-bound trains will once again stop at St. Catharines VIA Station following the completion of construction work in the area.

Also starting today May 23, four new Lakeshore West express options in each direction were introduced.

In the mornings, eastbound express trips will depart West Harbour GO at 6:10 a.m. and 7:10 a.m., arriving at Toronto Union Station at 7:17 a.m. and 8:17 a.m. Eastbound express trips will depart Aldershot GO at 6:51 a.m. and 7:51 a.m., arriving at Union Station at 7:47 a.m. and 8:47 a.m.

One thought on “GO Transit adds more trains to Niagara Falls

  1. Can we assume that Thanksgiving means Canadian Thanksgiving only. Would not expect US thanksgiving even though it is a heavy time for US persons going to Canada.
